What a dose of humility!
I have been asked to lead a Spanish Stations of the Cross on February 29, 2008.
My conversational Spanish is very poor and I have limited knowledge of words......
I notified the pastor that even though we love visiting Guatemala, and can get by there, our Spanish is still very limited and poor.
His response was, "Just love them (Spanish speaking community)and they will love you."
OK - but how does that make my Spanish understandable? (Just Kidding)
Well - under obedience, and for a great dose of humility, I will do it.
I did ask for help from a friend "Danny," to be a guide. (Thank you God for friends.......)
Please pray for me that even though I am very limited, that the Spanish Community will be able to experience God's love, suffering, and passion though the Stations of the Cross.
Camino De Santiago
Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."
